4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
2012 batch. With cascade hops.
Pours copper in color with a white head and lots of sticky lacing.
Aroma is citrus, crystal malt and a touch of rye.
Taste is juicy citrus cascade hops, malt, is slighty syrupy and sweet but the hop bitterness balances everything out. not sure how the previous years version of this beer tasted, but the 2012 version with the cascade hops is superb.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep copper infused, tangerine pour with a 1/4 inch eggshell head that dimishes into a ring and leaves spotty lacing. Faint nose of hops, caramely malt, and spicy rye. Flavor shows tons of brown sugar, toffee, honey, and spice. Definitely breathing out some alcohol but actually not very distracting. Nice winter warmer...medium mouthfeel.
